A new nightclub is set to open this week in Invercargill.
Divaz owner Natasha McEwing is moving the strip club to the back of the premises to make way for the new beach themed nightclub.
There were not enough live band venues or nightclubs in the city, she said.
The current Divaz club had been renovated to make way for palm trees and sand on themed nights, she said.
''It's something different and it will bring a bit of warmth to cold Invercargill nights,'' she said.
The new club would play various types of music and would not be a strip club.
Meanwhile, Divaz would now operate behind the new club.
''There will be a back entrance or people can come through the club to access it,'' she said.
